Free Star Gazing Tonight At Lake Burien School Park


Print This Post  Email This Post

Tonight (Friday April 3rd) starting at 8pm at Lake Burien School Memorial Park there will be a FREE star (and planet, and perhaps even satellite/UFO?) gazing gathering where people can look through an advanced 8-inch Meade computer-controlled telescope.

Pending weather, this will also happen Saturday night (April 4th) at the same time and location.

You’re invited to come celebrate 400 years of stargazing since Galileo first looked through a telescope in 1609 (and no, he didn’t do it in Burien).

Local amateur astronomer Jim Burrows will be your host, so come to the park and look for the telescope setup.

We know this is last-minute notice, but it was only decided on this afternoon once the weather cleared. Keep in mind though that it’s going to be another cold night, so bundle up and be sure to bring your Snuggie blanket thingy.

Lake Burien School Memorial Park is located at SW 148th and 16th Avenue SW in Burien (map below).
